3 Short Trips You Can Take in the UK


If you live in the UK or are visiting for a while, there are plenty of stunning destinations which are perfect for a short break. Whether you want to walk on the shore by the wild sea, soak up the cultural delights of a historical city, or explore a vibrant small town, there are so many options it can be hard to choose. Luckily, this list has narrowed down three of the best, to make your decision-making just that bit easier!

Bath, Somerset, UK

This stunning city is home to a Roman-era bathhouse, as well as plenty of Regency-era delights. Wander the same streets that Jane Austen trod, admire the beautiful stone architecture, and you can’t miss a visit to that famous Roman bath. The city also offers plenty of great eating and drinking options, so you can refuel if all your exploring is starting to tire you out.

Dungeness, Kent, UK

Head to the southeast coast of the UK if you want a beach with a difference. The stretch of coastline around Dungeness is far emptier than most of the resorts around here, and it retains a slightly mysterious, bleak atmosphere all year round. If you’re looking for an opportunity to get out in the wild elements, Dungeness is a great stretch of coastline to visit.

Hebden Bridge, Yorkshire, UK

The buzzing town in Yorkshire often claims that it is home to the highest percentage of independent shops by area of any settlement in the UK. It’s hard to deny that Hebden Bridge doesn’t possess its own unique, slightly rebellious atmosphere. Wander the pretty streets, pop into those famous shops, or sit outside with ice cream or a coffee at one of the town’s many charming cafes when the sun is shining.
